Although Capcom remains tight-lipped, shop listings are continuing to reveal some new products on the horizon.
As well as the previously-reported Gakuen Basara 5 and Mame Sengoku Basara 3, AmiAmi is now accepting preorders for Itou Ryuu's Naked Blood manga which currently runs in Capbon magazine. Their page for the book gives a price of ¥630 and a tentative date of early April. The Naked Blood story chronicles Tokugawa Ieyasu's growth over the course of the games, a little like Itou's recent Bloody Angel series which focused on Ishida Mitsunari.
In the US, FUNimation have revealed that a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will be released on 11th June 2013 containing both seasons of the Sengoku Basara anime for $69.98 (expect to pay half that much with online discounts). This makes sense as the limited edition second season pack has already sold out at some stores. I wonder if they'll use different cover art?
Speaking of video releases, the DVD recording of Butai Sengoku Basara 3 ~Setouchi Kyouran~ also met its early release date this week. My copy's on its way so there'll be a review posted soon.
The last piece of news is that the third Sengoku Basara Fan Club (Eiyuu No Kai) newsletter is scheduled to be despatched to members on the 9th March. Perhaps it will finally trigger some formal announcements of all of the new March merchandise from Capcom themselves? I'm hoping for a track list for the two new 'Best' CDs soon!
